Dear Grey Wolf
Wholewheat bread is generally more nutritional that white, refined bread. It has a higher dietary fibre, vitamin and mineral content. One should, however, keep in mind that both white and wholewheat bread, have a high Glycaemic Index (GI) and that you may have to use seed breads with a low GI if you have problems with insulin.
